What is nonsurgical rhinoplasty?

You may have heard of nonsurgical rhinoplasty referred to by its nicknames “liquid nose job” or “30-minute nose job.” A nonsurgical rhinoplasty is actually a dermal filler procedure that changes the shape of your nose for up to 6 months.

This procedure is ideal for people who are looking to smooth out bumps in their nose or make it look less angular but who are not ready for a permanent solution, or are worried about the risks and recovery time involved in a traditional rhinoplasty.

Going under the needle is certainly less complicated than going under the knife for a nose job, but modifying the nose’s shape is never risk-free. This article will cover the costs, procedure, recovery, and pros and cons of a liquid rhinoplasty.
